"My Podiatrist prescribed a pair of these about eight years ago and applied metatarsal pads on them. I guess I have finally worn them out, but I can hardly function without them.

Yet the hardest part is actually educating ourselves and finding the best insoles for kids. Personally, with my children active in both soccer & baseball, I have witnessed children coping with foot pain from sever's disease to strained heels & arches. Full Story
